We supply everything except the cake. All our food is prepared with fresh wholesome ingredients and laid out Japanese style. A bowl of noodles to slurp with chopsticks and fresh homemade sandwiches with a few treats thrown in.

We provide party bags for all the kids and a special ninja gift bag for the birthday kid who’s aim is to complete his/her mission in becoming a member of the shoguns clan.

The ninja will then enter the dojo (sacred training hall) and cut the cake with a sword and finally present the birthday kid with their own special ninja scroll.

Our parties are run from our specially built Japanese training halls known as dojos creating an oriental atmosphere with swords and weapons adorning the walls and a Japanese suit of armour in our shop window known as Takeda.

ABOUT USHISTORY

Training with the Grandmaster

Training at the highest level is something we all aspire to. This year October 2014 Shogun.ie brought 29 students to the Uk to train directly under Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura. The event took place in Brighton as the first European Tai kai teaching one of the rarest schools of Martial Arts in the world Kijin Chosui Ryu. Head instructor for Ireland Martin O’Raghaillaigh Kyoshi was one of the demonstration group that had the privilege of being on the receiving end of the grandmasters techniques. It was a truly unique experience for students who had the opportunity to see first hand a true Japanese grandmaster.

Martin O’Raghaillaigh has often said that know one can really appreciate the knowledge that a grandmaster has until they experience it for themselves and indeed the unique way in which old style Martial Arts are transmitted to our generation. A generation that is so overwhelmed with modern misconceptions and ideas of what martial Arts really are. Martial Arts are there to impart knowledge that will improve the person. It is there to enable the mind. Having the ability to protect yourself will naturally improve confidence and awareness. A child with a disciplined mind has a greater chance of escaping from danger. An adult with a good level of discipline has the ability to develop a cultured mind which in itself is a form of self defence.

Confidence, control and discipline demonstrated at the highest levels are achieved through the repetition of age old techniques that test the mind and body

ABOUT US

Martial Arts Navan

 

 

We are a family run Martial Art that teach children the value of Manners, Discipline and Respect. We teach adults Awareness, Confidence and Self Defence for all situations. We are a very old Martial Art and continue to teach the old ways. Children must learn how to escape from danger and know the difference between right and wrong. A clever Martial Artist does not need to fight but knows how to defend themselves when there is no other option.

The Martial Art we teach is called Genbukan Martial Arts and our dojo name is Sanzen Genbukan Dojo.

Our centre in Navan is designed as a traditional Japanese dojo with male and female changing rooms and a seated area for parents so you can enjoy a coffee and watch the class. We have a relaxed atmosphere but are dedicated to imparting knowledge and good manners while learning self defence with fun and games in a traditional environment

Our adult classes are structured exactly the same as our head dojo in Japan (Honbu) and teach in the traditional Japanese manner. You do not have to be big, strong or very fit to start Martial Arts you just have to walk in the door

Health benefits:

Traditional Martial Arts are renowned for their health benefits. Fitness will develop over time in a very positive way. What is not so well known is the mental health benefits. When you are learning something that has depth and enjoying yourself at the same time the benefits to mental health are enormous. You are physically and mentally moving all the time. Challenging the body and the mind in a positive environment

We remain true to our traditions and train directly under world renowned Ninpo Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura

At the Shogun Martial Arts training centre in Navan we teach Genbukan Ninpo along with traditional Japanese Jujutsu which itself is a complete Martial Art combining the oldest forms of Koryu Karate as well as weapons and every aspect of unarmed combat. The aim of traditional Martial Arts is to avoid conflict and win without fighting and for that reason the highest level unarmed techniques are trained and mastered both in the body and the mind. Children do not learn how to fight but how not to fight while at the same time capable of defending themselves with confidence and skill through awareness and discipline

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts train the mind as well as the body to endure all
